Thought-provoking reflections on how religion is crucial to the secular university
^^During the last century American students and scholars have found it increasingly difficult to discuss the relation of religion to the mission of self-consciously secular colleges and universities. C. John Sommerville here sorts through a number of issues to bring these matters into sharper focus.


^^Sommerville explores the crisis of the secular university, argues that religions and secular universities need each other, and examines how Christianity shows up on both sides of our "culture wars." The astute reflections in Religious Ideas for Secular Universities point the way to a dialogue that would do justice both to religious insights and to the neutrality that is the goal of secular education.^
